You need a composite dongle, as in http://www.solidsignal.com/pview.asp?p=10pincompos Make sure you get the correct one, there is a Component dongle also.

Try to use the 10-pin Mini-DIN output connector or buy a converter from HDMI to RCA, HDMI to Composite. If you are near any local stores that sells those like RadioShack, then you can check if it is available. Or check and order online at SolidSignal.

you need the cable user texasbrit linked PLUS an RF modulator

You only need the modulator if the TV only has coax - many SD TVs have yellow composite video then you don't need the modulator.

Apologies, I only read the post not the title.....!!!!

OK, but the RF Modulator only has 3 inputs and the dongle has 6 plugs????

Make sure you are using the correct cable.

This is the cable I have.
Was connected to my daughter's TV. She moved to school and took that TV with her.
The only TV I have only has a coax input...
